Posted on 06/04/2009 5:45:40 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
Nuradin Abdi was convicted in 2007 of planning to blow up an Ohio shopping mall.
Iyman Faris was convicted in 2003 of planning to blow up the Brooklyn Bridge.
Christopher Paul was convicted in 2008 of conspiring to use explosives against targets in the U.S. and Europe.
All three terrorists worshiped and socialized at a small mosque in Columbus, Ohio, and, according to David B. Smith, an attorney for Faris, were part of a larger group of jihadists and extremists who frequented the mosque.
The FBI now is investigating reports of links to that same mosque by Muslim-convert Abdulhakim Muhammad who allegedly shot and killed one soldier Monday and critically wounded another in a drive-by attack on a Little Rock, Ark., recruiting station, ABC News has learned.

Heard that on ABC radio this afternoon. Was surprised they even mentioned the ‘mosque’. Yeah. Those pesky Amish are at it, again. /s
columbus Ohio is a den of Liberalism and lefties..with Ohio State Univ a total leftist wasteland! ( yeah, I’m a buckeye..its gone downill since Woody punched a football player on the sidelines! ha)
And yet nothing happens to the mosque. But if you, Jim, lay a pork rind outside the door, you will be prosecuted.
Huh? Nice to see after 6 years the fbi is looking into things at that mosque ... after 9-11 one “hit” would do it for me (bump) ;-)
Ohio = Amish?
Dam, how things have changed.
I remember that story about the shopping mall in Ohio.
IIRC, it was in the Columbus area.
Islam is not compatible with these United States. Unless good people stand up and resist, we will go the way of western Europe.
And then it will be over. Welcome to another retreat of civilization, a new Dark Age of worldwide Islam.
Friends I know that live in Tampa, FL said there is mosque near King High School between Hwy. 301 and 56th Street. Late at night around 12-2 AM, about 50 cars will appear. They stay for a couple of hours then leave. Supposedly LEO’s are watching them, but everyone that lives around there think there are some very strange comings and goings.
Sorry, I should have pinged you.
Is it this one?
After Obama’s Muslim Speech: AG Eric Holder Issues Statement Protecting American Muslims
Statement of Attorney General Eric Holder on Department of Justices Outreach and Enforcement Efforts to Protect American Muslims
Thursday, June 4, 2009
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder released the following statement relating to President Obamas historic speech today in Cairo, Egypt:
“The President’s pledge for a new beginning between the United States and the Muslim community takes root here in the Justice Department where we are committed to using criminal and civil rights laws to protect Muslim Americans. A top priority of this Justice Department is a return to robust civil rights enforcement and outreach in defending religious freedoms and other fundamental rights of all of our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the housing market, in our schools and in the voting booth.
“There are those who will continue to want to divide by fear - to pit our national security against our civil liberties - but that is a false choice. We have a solemn responsibility to protect our people while we also protect our principles.”
This Muslim extremist has a history and he walks earlier.
How may others are out there walking free?
According to FOX News
A Muslim convert accused of fatally shooting an Army private and wounding another had previously been arrested on a weapons charge in Tennessee, but that charge eventually was dropped.
Police say Abdulhakim Muhammad, then known as Carlos Bledsoe, was arrested in February 2004 after a traffic stop in Nashville.
He was found with an SKS rifle inside in the car, with five rounds in a clip and one round in the rifle’s chamber. Officers also found a sawed-off shotgun and another shotgun inside the car, as well as an ounce of marijuana, a switchblade knife and two shotgun shells on Muhammad
Muhammad is accused of killing Army Pvt. William Andrew Long and wounding Pvt. Quinton I. Ezeagwula in a shooting Monday at a Little Rock recruiting center. After the attack, police confiscated from Muhammad’s truck an SKS rifle believed to be used in the shootings.
Muhammad faced weapons and drug charges after the arrest, though court records show prosecutors filed only a single misdemeanor charge against him. That charge was dismissed four months later.
Material seized from Muhammad’s truck and apartment this week included guns, ammunition and Molotov cocktails.
An FBI-Homeland Security intelligence assessment document obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday suggested Muhammad may have considered targeting other locations, including Jewish and Christian sites.
Where in Columbus is this mosque located?
Uh...Mr. Holder...How come there aren’t any “fundamental rights”, like freedom of religion, in predominantly-Muslim countries? What does the Koran say about what should happen to non-Muslims, Mr. Holder? What proportion of terrorist acts around the world are committed by Muslims, Mr. Holder?
Sounds like the mosque-madrassa I used to be neighbor to. (And the LEOs were indeed taking notes.)
There is more of this going on than most people realize, and in small towns as well as the cities.
Do they have 747, 777, 767 and 330 Flight Simulators at the Mosque?? Just asking!!
I hope this doesn’t give rise to negative stereotypes of Muslims. The President will be compelled to give another speech.
whaduya know! Their all connected in Ohio? Surprise it isn’t CHicago!
Must’ve been something wrong with the way the police handled the search or something for a guy to get off with a sawed-off shotgun, and SKS, AND Drugs, down to a misdemeanor and then dropped altogether... Very strange. I wonder if there were any allegations by Bledsoe regarding the police’s behavior in the case. That’s the ONLY thing I can think of - illegal search or something.
At any rate at least the FBI is investigating mosques now. I wonder if they’ll ever get around to investigating the Mosque in Norman, Oklahoma (OKC Bombing related, OU Bombing related, 9/11 Hijackers related, etc...). I’m guessing that’s a “no”.
However, politics have proved obstructive to all facets of counterterrorism policy. And politics may have been at play in the Muhammad case as well as in other cases involving Black Muslim converts. Several weeks ago, STRATFOR heard from sources that the FBI and other law enforcement organizations had been ordered to back off of counterterrorism investigations into the activities of Black Muslim converts. At this point, it is unclear to us if that guidance was given by the White House or the Department of Justice, or if it was promulgated by the agencies themselves, anticipating the wishes of President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.From an email a friend sent me.
The OKC bombing is still a question.
The terrorists who flew the plane into the Pentagon 9/11
lived in San Diego and were in the phone book in 2000
This was only the beginning. There will be many more to follow.
Make certain LEO knows and are watching....contact all levels: county, state and national. Contact them each time you see suspect activity...... No excuses then that they just didn't know.
You may save lives.
FYI Ohio Mosque tie with other terrorists.
And just this morning Barry says 1,200 Mosques in all 50 states is a good thing for the USA, one of the largest Muslim nations. Lot’s of mayhem on it’s way.
O ... M ... G ...!!
We’re living our worst nightmare.
This "allegedly" crap drives me up the wall.
The a-hole admitted he did it when they pulled him over.
Thanks reading it now.
How can this be? Obozo’s overseas bowing and scraping before the Muslim world. Meanwhile, back at home...
Speaking of Nashville in 2004- this took place some mnths after Bledsoe aka A M Mohammed’s arrest:
OCTOBER 8 , 2004 : (REPORT: IRAQI AL-UQUAILY IS ARRESTED IN NASHVILLE -— See NASHVILLE TN CELL, ABU GHRAIB “PANTY-TORTURE MEME”, HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATION OF IRAQ) ... “FBI terrorism agents arrested Al-Uquaily, 33, after he took possession of two disassembled machine guns, four disassembled hand grenades and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. Court documents show Al-Uqaily also was interested in getting missiles used to disable tanks. Authorities said he expressed animosity toward the Jewish community, but did not give specific plans.” —— “Iraqi arrested in Nashville on weapons charge,” AP , October 8, 2004, http://www.wate.com/Global/story.asp?S=2407081
Are they even allowed to carry a gun if they are at a recruiting station?....Let them bear arms! Let them defend themselves.
It was the Polaris Mall in Columbus. Just a few miles from OSU, whose campus is full of Somalis (Nuradin Abdi is Somali I believe).
How in the Hell do you walk after being caught with all of that!?
I knew it was one of the two big malls in Columbus.
Did the authorities ever come out and say it was the Polaris Mall?
Show me a mosque that’s not a terrorist cell or training center and that might be newsworthy.
Oh, I’m sure they will be, God bless ‘em.
They’re gonna have to ... Eric Holder only
wants to protect mosques and baby killing
factories from suspicious people.
but....but....but ....bHo says uh.....we “respect uh one another”....etc....etc....etc.....
mosques near Columbus, OH:
Is that near the University of South Florida?
Thnx for the ping! The mosque, yemen, attack on our land, bombs in a bottle, PREVIOUS arrest for weapons—(wonder why they were dropped and was this before or after his prison time)...attacks on our troops, our land, etc.. Enough is Enough.
I’m sick of political correctness over terroristic activities. The media barely covers any of this, it’s BS!!
What has Dear Leader said about all this?
